Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich

After being widowed, Holly has been packing on the pounds. Having a bad day, and fully aware how tight and uncomfortable her clothes have become, she is rushing to catch a flight and finds herself sitting next to Logan Montgomery, the hot, hunky personal trainer to the stars. Surprisingly, he finds Holly’s sense of humor and lack of ego refreshing compared to the self-absorbed, firm, tanned, and toned blonde models he usually dates. Impulsively, he offers to help Holly get back into shape.

Holly agrees, and soon the striking redhead is shedding pounds and gaining confidence, ripening into a curvaceous beauty and her drama-free friendship with Logan ripening into sex-fueled workout sessions.

Holly will never be pencil-thin, some women just aren't made to be, but she can live with that and so can the men who admire her. But what about Logan? Can a man whose life and livelihood are based on the Hollywood ideal of perfection truly love a woman who will never measure up to that standard?

This was a fast, fun read, not my usual kind of book, but I’ll try anything. At times I didn't like some of the characters in it, the way they were so fixated on body and image, but it was still a good story, with some valid points to ponder about looks and relationships.
